Usage of TCP

Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is a communication protocol used in the Internet Protocol (IP) suite. It is responsible for ensuring reliable, ordered, and error-checked delivery of data between applications running on networked devices. TCP works by establishing a connection between two devices and then sending data in segments. Each segment is acknowledged by the receiver, and if a segment is lost or corrupted, it is retransmitted. TCP also handles flow control, congestion control, and provides a mechanism for multiplexing and demultiplexing data streams.

Examples of TCP used in texting:

1. Hey, do you know why our video call keeps dropping? Maybe there's an issue with the TCP.
2. Just finished configuring the network settings for the project. Luckily, the TCP ensures that our data is transmitted reliably.
3. Can you send me that file again? Seems like there is an issue with my TCP connection.
